As Annabelle's world spins out of control with blackouts, Ivy's deadly desires heat up the novel with decadent tales of sex and subsequent death. But, the graphic sex scenes are part and parcel of who Ivy is underneath her shiny veneer. The climax to the novel definitely leaves open a sequel but I won't spoil it for you. If you are one of the cheating bastards Ivy hunts at night in clubs, you might want to think twice about who you go to bed with. You might just wake up dead.
The story is replete with graphic sex scenes as the plot develops along with the body count. The heroine in this lurid tale may be swallowing the semen, but she makes sure they are swallowing the poison.
In her erotic psychological thriller, Toxic Desire, Douglas blends reveling in the horrifying details of the vengeful nature of her lead protagonist, Annabelle Worthington, together with a keen interest in exploiting the sexuality of the intimate scenes that she portrays. Her juicy recounting of numerous sex scenes in lurid thrust-by-thrust detail is enough to make even a hardened bon viveur blush. But, as she herself says, “I’m not all about just being graphic, I also build characters that the readers will love and or hate, so they can feel pulled right inside of the story that they are reading.” Indeed, her characterization is both riveting and repellent, while her narrative line is straightforward and fast-paced, so much so that if you prove to be one of the admirers of her writing, you’ll probably want to read through the entire work in a single sitting. In fact, Toxic Desire would make for an ideal commute read, and reminds one of the days in which one could pick up a cheap, but thrilling, read from many a news agent on station platforms around the world.
Despite the transient nature of her subject matter, Douglas takes her research for her books very seriously indeed. Relying heavily on her Google searches, she also conducts informal interviews with those whom she considers to have similar characteristics to her own protagonists. Devoting much time to perusing books on issues relating to the central themes of her work, she is also a keen viewer of documentaries fringing on the selfsame area of interest. Even going as far as visiting hospitals to get the details of her stories right, Douglas attests to the amount of time going into her research. Her other novels so far, consisting of Fear Inducer, Hounded and Hounded 2, focus much more on horror than they do on the numerous sexual encounters of their various protagonists.
The cover of Ellie's book is what drew me to choose this book to read. Her color scheme was eye catching and the image of the city with a lurking view of a girl intrigued my thoughts of wanting to read her book. The title definitely fits the book with toxic desire of wanting to get even and rage of hate.
I give big kudos to Ellie for her writing is so easily paced and so chair griping. I would highly recommend anyone who is looking for a hot steamy murderous read to grab her book and enjoy over a weekend read!
